Best Amazon Strength Training Essentials
Amazon Basics Neoprene Workout Dumbbell
We don’t want to bring up bad times, but we all remember when none of us could find dumbbells anywhere, right? Now that they’re easier to find again, we’re grabbing them while we can. We like the ones from Amazon Basics. Along with being available as a single set, you can grab them in a set of three, along with a rack. They’re easy to grip, small enough to keep rest in the corner, and also come in lots of fun colors.
Bowflex SelectTech 552 Adjustable Dumbbells (Pair) and Stand Bundle
We stand by the above choice, but if you’re a serious lifter, you may be more interested in this option from Bowflex. Each dumbbell can be adjusted to be 52.5 pounds, and the included rack is a safer place to rest them than the floor. A two-month JRNY Mobile-Only Membership is included too, which we think is cool, because then you’ll have access to motion tracking. Good form is everything!

You probably weren’t thinking of anything so techy for this category, but this gadget from Peloton has us sweating with excitement!
Powered by AI, the device uses the camera to keep track of your reps and form, providing personal recommendations to help you improve. You’ll need to be a Peloton member to access it all, but we think it’s worth it, especially with the camera’s self-mode, which allows you to see yourself alongside virtual instructors to make sure you’re doing everything correct.
Brebon Weighted Hoola Exercise Fit Hoop

Adjust the seat until you’re comfortable, and then connect to Bluetooth. There are speakers in the back, as well as a place for dumbbells, and there’s even a USB port.

Hydrow Wave Rowing Machine
Rowing is a wonderful, full-body workout and the Hydrow is one of our favorites to do it in. Of course, it is on the larger size, which is why we’re suggesting that you also check out the Hydrow Wave Rowing Machine. It’s slimmer, can be placed upright, and has a 16 inch touchscreen to follow challenges and workouts on. You will have to be a Hydrow member ($44.00 per month) to enjoy those. However, if you decide to hold off on that, you can still use the rower manually. Although you won’t be able to take part of online classes, you can still adjust the drag for resistance and keep track of strokes.
